As emphasized in the UN Agreement on the Sustainable Development Growth (SDG) adopted in 2015, international collaboration is becoming more and more important as it is one of critical factors to improve the welfare of people, especially for developing countries and to protect our planet. It is also analyzed that utilizing space technology effectively for emerging space nations could lead to enhancing their capabilities in improving agriculture, health, education, resource management, disaster management amongst many others.
